NodeBots Day AU Event Code of Conduct

This Code of Conduct applies to all NodeBots Day events run in Australia.

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately.

Sponsors are also subject to this anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualised images, activities, or other material. Sponsor attendees should not use sexualised clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualised environment.

If a participant engages in harassing behaviour, the event organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the event with no refund.

If you are removed from a NodeBots Day event

We have been very proud of the NodeBots community for being mostly mature and well-behaved at our events thus far, and hopefully we will never have to enact any disciplinary measures. It is the purpose of this code of conduct to ensure everyone knows that we do not tolerate harassment or otherwise offensive behaviour and we want to know immediately if it's happening at one of our events.

Who to contact

If you'd like to report an issue, do not hesitate to approach Andrew Fisher, Anna Gerber or Damon Oehlman with any and all issues. Alternatively email us at at We take every issue seriously.

If you feel this Code of Conduct could be improved, we welcome your feedback.
